Hemophilia Association of the Capital Area

Summer Camp

Summer camp registration now open

The Hemophilia Association of the Capital Area and Virginia Hemophilia Foundation are teaming up again for Camp Youngblood in 2020! The dates are Sunday, July 5 – Friday, July 10.

NEW THIS YEAR: In order to make the registration process run more smoothly, the enrolling parent or guardian will fill out a short Camp Youngblood prescreening survey to determine eligibility. This is required for all applicants, even returning campers.

The process was put into place to make sure everyone meets the eligibility criteria before filling out the lengthy application. The criteria is based on the HACA/VHF Camp Youngblood Application and Admission Guidelines – you can find them here: https://vahemophilia.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/Camp-Youngblood_Program-Guidelines_10.19.pdf

Camp staff will review each survey and those who meet the criteria will be sent a password to access the 2020 Camp Youngblood application. Those who do not meet the criteria will be notified as well.

ALSO NEW IN 2020:We will also be offering a Family Camp weekend at Camp Holiday Trails that will take place July 10-12 immediately after the summer camp session. Families will participate in the same fun activities as campers, stay in cabins and come to know the meaning of "camp magic" at CH. If you are interested in registering for Family Camp, add all your family members to your account before starting the application, then select “Camp Youngblood & Youngblood Family Camp Weekend” as your session.

The Camp Youngblood application process is open enrollment and not first come first served. This will allow VHF, HACA, and CHT the chance to review applications and manage the roster according to the application/admission guidelines. All application deadlines must be adhered to in order to be considered. The Youngblood Family Camp has limited space, ad eligible families will be chosen from confirmed Camp Youngblood campers using a lottery system.

The application process is now open on the Camp Holiday Trails website, https://www.ultracamp.com/clientlogin.aspx?idCamp=398&campCode=chd. The deadline for submitting applications is March 30, 2020, and all camp paperwork and medical assessment is due by April 30. These dates are earlier than in years past, which is why the application has opened earlier as well.

Please make note of these important changes and dates before you begin the process.

Looking forward to seeing you at camp in 2020!
